Would be cool to have a TOOL to create guides on pages/artboards in affinity suite. Almost like a Shape tool, but tailor made "red nodes" to address 90% of guides/grids needs, without having to go into a studio panel or large window, but that would still remain available...

thanks for your consideration

Hello @ronnyb,

I support this idea. But I would rather use the tools that are already available and make it possible to turn any object into a 'guide object'. Or move them to something that could be called 'guide layer' where they turn into guides.

This could also solve this request about exact positioning of guides :)

You can drag guides out from the rulers when using the move tool.

I mean a tool / mode which would let you position and try out multiple guides, columns, rows, gutters, margins, etc effortlessly and precisely, both numerically and UI based...
